Valentine’s Day might mean cards and gifts of candy and flowers, but for many it is a day to enjoy a romantic meal. The holiday of love has roots in an ancient Roman fertility festival. In the Middle Ages this old tradition merged with stories of different saints named Valentine, and a new holiday was born. Whether you are planning to celebrate with a candlelit dinner for two, a meal with the kids or by taking a stash of sweet baked goods home, you can feast in style, right here in Fishers and Geist.
